Well.. is it not possible to set a global http_proxy environment ?
So no real reason for KDE to duplicate this. Though a simple obvious way
through KDE might help.
Not actually quite sure how to set this .. is it:
setenv http_proxy blah.blah.blah 8080
That of course would be using 'sh' as opposed to 'bash'
However, exact syntax.. is it
'proxy.address:port' or 'proxy.address port'

Has anyone installed KDE2? Well - obviously, yes
- but anyone here
wish to comment on any problems?
It still has the fault of copying the Windows "end user configuration"
model. e.g. no obvious way to globally set parameters such as web
proxies. Let alone something as sophisticated as stopping an end
user (or group of end users) altering things.
The concept of adminstrator configuration (and restriction) appears
either lacking or undocumented.
Also kmail still won't read maildir mailboxes, let alone interoperate
